Good news spreads fast

The so-called Fox News North is, in fact, Quebecor’s proposed coast to coast TV channel Sun TV News, which plans, apparently, a January 1, 2011 launch. On June 1, Quebecor applied to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) for a Category 1 Specialty TV licence for their new venture called Sun TV News, which will replace the over-the-air Sun TV station in Toronto.

The application is currently under review.

It’s a TV news channel that wants to “challenge the existing English Canadian TV news establishment,” according to Quebecor Media president and CEO Pierre Karl Peladeau.

We’ll see.
